Responsibility in Innovation: A Survey of Coming Attractions in Nanotechnology

A Conversation with Lawrence Gasman Lawrence Gasman is the cofounder of NanoMarkets, LLC and author of the recent book, Nanotechnology Applications and Markets, which examines the market for nanotechnology in the healthcare, energy, and information technology sectors, and provides a generalized approach to forecasting the impact of nanotechnology on particular companies and industries. In this interview, Gasman emphasizes several likely near term discontinuities based on nanotechnology. And he offers some insight into possible social effects, and the limits of regulation. And yet without an ability to forecast developments, what kind of responsibility is possible? - Leggi Leggi
